As time passes, our skin shows the natural, inevitable signs of aging – wrinkles, sagging, and sun damage. Cosmetic dermatology means that you don’t have to live with those effects anymore. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures available at our practice allow you to smooth lines and wrinkles, raise sunken areas, reduce blemishes and scarring, tighten sagging skin, treat spider and varicose veins, and generally produce fresh, glowing skin so you can look as young and rejuvenated as you feel.
Pediatric dermatology involves comprehensive diagnosis and treatment services for the unique skin of infants, children and adolescents. While children and adults experience many of the same skin conditions, certain conditions are more prevalent in younger patients and require special care that takes into account the growing needs of these patients. Children are often at risk for fungal and bacterial infections of the skin, as well as a wide array of other acquired and congenital conditions.
Our treatments are gentle yet successful, allowing children to engage in their everyday activities while efficiently managing their skin ailment. Children with healthy skin can also be seen by our doctor for regular examinations to learn about proper skin care, including adequate sun protection. Early examination by a dermatologist can promote a lifetime of healthy skin for our pediatric patients.
While most types of dermatologic conditions can be successfully treated through topical medications and nonsurgical treatments, certain conditions may require a more intense treatment approach to relieve symptoms, restore a normal appearance and prevent complications from conditions such as skin cancer, scars, cysts and varicose and spider veins. Most cosmetic concerns of the skin can also be treated surgically, often using the most advanced laser or minimally invasive techniques.
Depending on the type and severity of each patient’s individual skin condition, dermatologic surgery can provide long-term results through safe and highly effective procedures that are associated with short recovery times and minimal scarring. While patients often experience mild redness and skin irritation after these procedures, they are able to quickly return to normal activities and achieve long-term results after treatment.
We provide a wide range of surgical procedures to provide patients with the most effective results for their skin condition, including thorough removal of skin cancer and other harmful diseases. The best treatment for each patient will be determined during a one-on-one evaluation that includes a physical exam and discussion of the patient’s goals for treatment.
